Winter Weather Response Underway The City of The Dalles will be utilizing the same winter weather response plan that we have used for years. 

We use a three phase sanding/plowing schedule. In Phase 1 we concentrate on the higher volume streets, hospital and school routes. When those are complete we move to Phase 2. These are the collector streets. As the storm subsides, we will start on Phase 3 which are the residential areas. Learn more at
